Two saggy pants wearing thugs in North Carolina recently invaded the wrong home. They came face to face with a fed-up victim who taught them a brutal old-school lesson.
A man in Raleigh, North Carolina was shocked when two thugs attempted an armed robbery at his home on Saturday, April 7, 2018. Police said that 19-year-old Deandre Carney and 22-year-old Willie Richardson went to a home located in 4200 block of Brintons Cottage Street around 4:51 a.m. and tried to rob the homeowner.
According to local news source WTVD, the armed home invasion didn’t end the way that Carney and Richardson had probably expected. When the homeowner confronted the two intruders, they found that he was armed. In the following moments, the homeowner opened fire on the two men.
Neighbors who heard the gunshots said that someone who looked like a small child had rung their doorbell moments before the incident. “There were six gunshots and someone outside yelling for help,” said a neighbor to a 911 dispatcher. That neighbor also says she thought she saw a child ring her doorbell.
“He looked smaller like a child. And then we saw the guy run off. We started hearing one shot and then three seconds later, five more shots went off,” the neighbor added. When police arrived they entered the residence to find that an 11-year-old boy who lived at the residence had been shot.
Police said the homeowner didn’t want to wait for an ambulance to arrive and immediately took his 11-year-old son to the hospital himself. No details have been released by police in regard to who fired the shots that hit the boy.
The two thugs who decided to victimize the homeowner and his son paid dearly for that mistake. According to local news source NY1, police found Deandre Carney dead as a doornail. This would be the last time he committed a crime on an innocent victim. Carney’s partner, Willie Richardson, was also shot by the homeowner and injured. Richardson was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment of his gunshot wounds.
Daniel Franco, who is another neighbor interviewed by NY1, said, “It’s a sad situation. As a neighborhood, we’re just kind of confused. We don’t know any of the details of what happened.” Many details of the incident are being withheld by police until the official investigation is complete. “It’s an excellent neighborhood. Family neighborhood. Very quiet just shocking,” Franco added.
Willie Richardson was charged with armed robbery, conspiracy to commit armed robbery, first-degree burglary, and possession of a firearm by a felon. In my opinion, Deandre Carney got exactly what he deserved.
It won’t be long before the dead thug’s family shows up on mainstream media with baby pictures to make him look like a good kid who was trying to turn his life around. The truth of the matter is that Carney and Richardson are both thugs, and they never expected for their victim to fight back. If the homeowner hadn’t been armed, it would likely be his family shopping for a casket and planning a funeral instead of Carney’s.
Every week in our country, there are violent home invasions like this one in Raleigh, North Carolina. Sadly, the number of homeowners who fight back or are prepared to defend themselves isn’t very high. Many home invasion victims are beaten or murdered by thugs like Carney and Richardson. This time, the homeowner wasn’t going to be a victim, and thanks to the 2nd amendment, he was ready to fight back with equal or greater force.
We can’t always control the circumstances that we are faced with in life, but what we can control is the extent to which we are prepared to defend our own lives and property. It’s crucial for 2nd Amendment supporters to lawfully exercise their right to bear arms. Stories like this one are tragic but provide solid proof that law-abiding Americans should always be ready to shoot back when evil darkens their doorstep.
